Title: The Current State of Interlanguage. Studies in honor of William E. Rutherford
Edited By: Lynn Eubank
Michael B. Smith
Larry Selinker
Description:

This state-of-the-art volume presents an outstanding collection of 22 studies on current issues facing research in second-language acquisition (SLA). The topics covered range from the role of universals at various levels of second-language (L2) knowledge; the way that linguistic knowledge is represented by L2 learners; the changing nature of linguistic theory itself; and the definition of usage phenomena like style shifting and code switching. The introduction is a concise yet detailed overview of research in the field over the past 10 years, and focuses on the present growing consensus on a number of issues that were at one point highly controversial.
